Guest View: For those still involved in NXIVM: ‘Suicide and murder is not for you’

Is Keith Raniere calculating and a shifter? Or a true Vanguard seeking the best for every woman, even if it means he must personally sacrifice for it.


Guest View: By Concerned and Aware

Everything Keith has done/taught, has been calculated. He says and teaches things that are designed to help turn future leaps of faith into much smaller steps of faith. This is part of his masterful ‘shifter’ behavior. For example, you might nod your head at being somebody in a past life that he describes, and before you know it, you are buying into ridiculous notions like your Dad is manipulating the commodities market. Keith uses small things to test buy-in. The classes are his biggest lab where he tests buy-in and where he lays groundwork to hack away at leaps of faith.

The most talked about example is all the groundwork he worked at over the years in order to get the Allisons and Laurens of the world to think it is a good thing to recruit women to be branded slaves. He uses the same sorts of groundwork to get women to be OK with sharing him and recruiting other women to have sex with him. Take a few minutes to look at all his different classes and you can see that he is leading your thoughts in a particular direction.

This isn’t new. Most of you already know this. Here is my point: I always thought that the “Is suicide bad?”, and “Is murder bad?” discussions were facilitated as a way for him to make it OK to “have people killed” who were “against the mission” (side note – what again is the mission???) I haven’t really paid attention to the posts linking Keith to possibly wanting to lead his followers to a mass suicide. However, something just clicked. Most think that Keith loved Pam more than anyone ever. Well, it’s a real possibility that he knowingly helped cause her to get cancer and then watched her die. We all know that Keith was over Barbara Jeske. He refused to help her carpal tunnel and watched her die. Keith likes to watch pain in females. Any and all females. Even you.

If I was a female and still in the organization, I would make it a priority to watch over myself and take care. I would not take some crazy suicide plot off the table. If he wanted to, you all know he could talk you into it in 10 minutes. If that conversation starts to come out of his mouth, nod, and plot your escape. Even better – plot it now and implement whenever. Decide now, that suicide and/or murder – no matter how lovely/vitally important it is made to sound – is not for you.

They may be stuck in a cult and in way over their heads, but they aren’t stupid. They know Frank is the only place they can get the truth. Now, they certainly don’t tell anyone they are reading this site…And most are chicken to discuss their real thoughts with each other.

I honestly believe that most of the left-over NXIVM people are only still there because they are afraid Keith will come after them when they leave. That includes the sisters, Nancy and even Lauren. Certainly, every male.

And I’d be shocked if almost all of the left-over inner circle members don’t have a detailed Kristen Keeffe-like escape route already planned.

It’s great that so many people have been posting about what could possibly happen if Keith Raniere and his followers felt the ship of NXIVM was sinking. I don’t know how many of his followers read the Frank Report. Is there anyway the NY Times or Albany Times Union would run a story on family and ex-members concerns of what Raniere and his followers might do if they felt painted into a corner to get more exposure

No mass suicide is going to happen for this chicken shit group, especially involving its chicken shit leader.

About the Author

Frank Parlato is an investigative journalist.

His work has been cited in hundreds of news outlets, like The New York Times, The Daily Mail, VICE News, CBS News, Fox News, New York Post, New York Daily News, Oxygen, Rolling Stone, People Magazine, The Sun, The Times of London, CBS Inside Edition, among many others in all five continents.

His work to expose and take down NXIVM is featured in books like “Captive” by Catherine Oxenberg, “Scarred” by Sarah Edmonson, “The Program” by Toni Natalie, and “NXIVM. La Secta Que Sedujo al Poder en México” by Juan Alberto Vasquez.

Parlato has been prominently featured on HBO’s docuseries “The Vow” and was the lead investigator and coordinating producer for Investigation Discovery’s “The Lost Women of NXIVM.” Parlato was also credited in the Starz docuseries "Seduced" for saving 'slave' women from being branded and escaping the sex-slave cult known as DOS.

Additionally, Parlato’s coverage of the group OneTaste, starting in 2018, helped spark an FBI investigation, which led to indictments of two of its leaders in 2023.

Parlato appeared on the Nancy Grace Show, Beyond the Headlines with Gretchen Carlson, Dr. Oz, American Greed, Dateline NBC, and NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, where Parlato conducted the first-ever interview with Keith Raniere after his arrest. This was ironic, as many credit Parlato as one of the primary architects of his arrest and the cratering of the cult he founded.

Parlato is a consulting producer and appears in TNT's The Heiress and the Sex Cult, which premiered on May 22, 2022. Most recently, he consulted and appeared on Tubi's "Branded and Brainwashed: Inside NXIVM," which aired January, 2023.
